In Reply to: The Harvard GSD program posted by Dennis Michaud on June 05, 2003 at 06:25:34:
I would like to thank everyone who responded to and offered suggestions concerning my posting. Unfortunately, I find that my ambition towards the GSD has been misunderstood as a gratuitous and naïve desire to enter a very well known institution merely based on its name. For the past three years, I have been researching MArch programs, and based on my interests and goals, I find the GSD to be the most suiting incubator to these predilections. This decision was based on curriculum, special programs, research opportunities, location, and the very nature of the program (which has nothing to do with the “prestige” of the university or snobbery).
I mention snobbery because of the tirade delivered by one replier. As for the impugning response of another, where my desire to be an architect is suspected of being inferior to my ambition to study at “Harvard” (I will refrain from entering into an ontological discussion of “being” an architect as I assume the author meant “to practice architecture” or “to be a licensed architect”.): I am hardly pressed to commence my professional career at this point. This is not a question of build or bust but of the best possible environment in which to develop my currently inchoate ideas and theories. So, in response, my current ambitious are more closely linked to education and MArch programs then they are to practicing architecture, as the former are more relevant to my present situation and are necessary for the latter.
I hope that this has helped to occlude any further misconceptions relating to my original posting. Please accept my respect for all of your opinions and my apology if the above came across as headstrong (it was not intended as such and if so, runs contrary to my true personality). Thank you all very much, and please feel free to continue to offer your opinions and suggestions via postings and/or e-mail to myself.
